Kristy's Story

19yrs ago my husband told me of these... I said "uumm a what???" So he took me to this little restaurant and ordered me one of these and I was hooked!! So easy to make too! But you won't want them all time if you don't want to add to your waste line! ;-)

Directions Step-By-Step

Make hamburger patties, one for each person (unless they want a double hot hamburger, this would need 2 patties) fry as you would for your regular hamburgers, season to your taste.
Deep fry your french fries according to the directions on package
toast lightly buttered hamburger buns on skillet, lay toasted side up On individual plates (one bun per hot hamburger, unless you are making a double, you would then need two buns, toasted side up... side by side)
Once hamburger patties are finished, use grease to make hamburger gravy - salt and pepper
Put layer of french fries on top of patty (make sure you put enough fries to cover the patty)
Smother with hamburger gravy and serve hot!!

    Not sure what to think of this one! I don't normally eat hamburgers but this is definitely interesting and might have to try it just to see what its like!

    These are called "Horseshoes". There is a restaurant in, I believe, Springfield, Illinos where these originated. Check out some of the other recipes for "Horseshoes" on here. They are great!

    Horseshoes? That is neat, hadn't heard of them called that before... well I guess I have heard of them in a way (LOL) They are good no matter what they are called ;-) I had my first taste back in 1992 at a small Ma & Pa restaurant in Shidler, OK.

    These are not horseshoes as it is made with gravy. A horseshoe is made with cheese sauce - toast, hamburger patty, fries, cheese sauce...

    Trust me, I'm from Springfield. And it isn't just the one restaurant. It's a TON of them!

    I got so caught up in the Horseshoe, that I forgot...

    This sounds really good and I cannot wait to try it!
